Group wants the IronPigs to ban the bacon
The Morning Call ^ | May 21, 2014 | Tim Darragh

Let's face it. When you go to Coca-Cola Park for an IronPigs game, many of us give in to the urge to, well, pig out.

And the team upped its game this season with the introduction of bacon scratch-and-sniff wear and official bacon caps, to go along with all of its porcine comestibles.

Who could resist?

Try the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. The Washington-based nonprofit, which promotes vegan diets and alternatives to animal testing, thinks the IronPigs' going whole-hog on bacon is neither a fun marketing ploy nor an appropriate health choice. The science is strong that a diet high in red and processed meats increases the risk for colorectal cancer, it says.

If history is any guide, in about 5 years we’ll be told that bacon is some sort of highly-nutritional super food.

105-year-old Pearl Cantrell says she loves bacon and eats it with every meal. She's discovered the fountain of youth, and it's crispy and delicious. 105-year-old Texas granny Pearl Cantrell credits bacon — and lots of it — with helping her live a long, happy life. “I love bacon, I could eat it for every meal — and I do!” Cantrell, of Richland Springs, told local NBC affiliate KRBC-TV. "I don't feel as old as I am, that's all I can say." The lively lady, who recently celebrated her birthday, received a special visit from the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile after the company learned of her love for cured, fried meat. Riding "shotbun," she took a spin around the town, population 332, to the cheers of her friends and neighbors.

My health nut mother used to badger her father in law for eating bacon and eggs every morning. He lived to 96. He was still riding his Honda 150 at 92.

%%
Take fun out of the Ball Game
Take fun out of the crowd.
No bacon or peanuts or Crackerjacks,
They don’t care if the fans don’t come back
So it’s hold your boot on the home team
Libs don’t care — they’re the same
Now it’s bran, fruits, greens, Brussel sprouts
At the new Ball Game...
%%

Look at the source, they push vegan, so from the start it’s obvious that the ones whose health they are concerned with is the pigs.

It’s become The New American Way that there isn’t anyone, anywhere, having fun of any variety that isn’t grumbled at and opposed by some group of anal-retentive jerkoffs someplace.

bacon scratch-and-sniff wear

Ok, I know this question is, well, questionable; but do they make underwear? Might be a good product line for the young/single pups. Ooops, maybe “pups” was a poor choice of words. This would not be good for dog owners!

BTW, there is lots of evidence that abortions cause breast cancer. We don’t hear about that though.
